A partial solar eclipse has been spotted over Scotland, allowing onlookers a peek at the moon covering a fifth of the sun.
The celestial event began at 10.08am in London on Tuesday, with a maximum eclipse occurring at 10.59am.
Above Glasgow and surrounding areas, the eclipse was at its peak just before 11am, with the sun appearing to have a large bite taken out of it.
STV News meteorologist Sean Batty shared footage of the solar eclipse from Paisley using specialised equipment.
It is always recommended to only look directly at an eclipse through special eclipse glasses, or by projecting an image onto a screen using various techniques.
Sean said: “In 2015 we had an excellent solar eclipse when over 90% of the sun was obscured, but it was only once 80% was covered that we started to notice any noticeable change to light on the ground.
“This partial solar eclipse is tiny and you won’t see any change to light levels.”
He added: “The next eclipse, which is bigger, will be in 2025 – when half of the sun will be obscured across northern parts of the country.
“Then, it’s 2039 when we’ll see the moon covering around 80% of the sun, and this may be noticeable on the ground with a slight dimming.
“But if you’re waiting for a solar eclipse better than 2015, you’ve only have to wait another 67 years, when in 2090 a total eclipse will be seen across the UK.”
